I know that I am coming in a bit late but better late than never as they say. As I stated in my "First Post" yesterday, I am fairly new to Genealogy compared to many of you and very in-experienced. Although I am new, I have aquired birth certificates, death certificates, news articles, lots of papers and photos! My Mom gave me a box of photos a year ago Thanksgiving that I still have not been able to tackle. There is a ton of great photos from Germany of my beautiful Mom and Ancestors. I had quite a bit coming at me fast and so now I have the "piles" that need to be organized.
I met my Aunt Virginia whom I was named after for the first time 1 year ago in August (over the phone). She lives in Kentucky, we didn't know about each other (found her in the beginning of my research - another post!) and she has given me so much information about my EIMES line (my father, her brother, John Adam EIMES 27 Dec. 1931 - 14 Jan 1997) whom I had never met! Then I made a Genealogical trip to KY, I met my Aunt and came back with lots of great things. We still talk twice a week and have grown very close. I need to organize that line too!
So I have decided that I am going to follow Dear Myrtle's "Finally Getting Organized...January 2009 Checklist" and get it all together. I use the binder method and love it, it works for me. The more organized I am the better Genealogy blogger I will be! I love to be organized. Elyse's blog has great tips too, thank you Elsye!
So Dear Mryt has inspired me and I look forward to following her plan and getting organized.
Thank you Dear Myrtle....
